Savage Stance 9mm & 64 Precision .22 — SHOT Show 2022

Did you know Savage was in the final round as the contender against Colt — more than 100 years ago — to make a government-issued .45 caliber handgun? Their Model 1907 striker-fired pistol lost to the 1911, but it was later produced commercially in .380 and touted as a pocket gun everyone could carry.

We haven’t seen many handguns from Savage lately, but they have now dived back onto the market with a full set of Stance 9mm pistols. It’s got a lot of the features shooters love in other popular micros, but it also brings some features we wish others had — including an attractive price point.

Also, Savage has updated their popular Model 64 semi-auto .22 with a new precision model.

Savage’s new Micro Compact, the Stance, brings a steel frame chassis to the game.

Stance Pistol

Stance fits in the micro-compact segment. It’s just 0.96″ wide, 6.2″ long, and 4.2″ high. At 1.375 lbs, it may be easy to wear all day without feeling burdened.

One thing that makes it stand out is that it has an internal steel chassis and changeable backstraps to fit your hands better. The grips and frame are aggressively textured. Its stainless steel slide is nitride finished and the frame comes in your choice of black, gray or Flat Dark Earth.

Stance has stout serrations and a ported slide. The front of the slide is beveled to make it easier to holster. Magazine options hold 7, 8, or 10 rounds.

All the controls are fully ambidextrous — not that they are swappable, but actually ambidextrous out-of-the-box. It’s got an option for an ambidextrous manual frame safety, as well as optional night sights.

The Stance pistol is available now in many colors and features. MSRP starts at $479.

64 Precision

Savage’s Model 64 has long been known as an accurate gun right out of the box. Now, Savage has given a true precision upgrade.

The venerable Model 64 gets a precision upgrade.

The big change is the MDT chassis. It’s molded from glass-filled nylon, which is stable and stiff. It’s got an adjustable buttstock and AR-compatible vertical grip. M-Lok slots finish off the forend.

The barrel is 16.5″ and threaded for suppressors. Both barrel and receiver are carbon steel and finished in matt black. The receiver has a 20 MOA Picatinny rail installed and it comes with 10- or 20-round magazines.

Most remarkable of all, the Savage 64 Precision rifle is just $299, and it’ll be available this Spring.
